The Big Fake Wedding - Seattle, 2022

Through a vendor's eyes.

After a very long 2-year wait, The Big Fake Wedding was finally able to make its way to Seattle!

I had been excitedly awaiting this unique opportunity to not only get in front of prospective couples, but to also show them what I could do for their wedding day in real time. It's not often that I perform for a wedding ceremony in front of hundreds of couples also shopping for their own vendors. When The Big Fake Wedding invited me to participate, I knew I had to be a part of it. And when they sent their inspiration board and told me that I had creative liberty with the music I played? I got SO excited. I mean, come on, just check out this dreamy mood board:

Immediately I knew that I had to showcase covers of Edgy and Dark Lana del Rey interspersed with Classical renditions of Pop hits a la Bridgerton Style to capture and bottle the Dreamy, Urban and Romantic experience.

So what is The Big Fake Wedding, anyway?

A wedding show alternative complete with an emotional vow renewal ceremony, light bites, and a dance-party reception. - TheBigFakeWedding.com

Yep, that's pretty much it in a nutshell: a vow renewal where prospective couples can see the vendors in action, followed by what they charmingly call the "Tunnel of Love" where the guests can make their way around to each vendor's table and get to know them a bit better to see whether they want to work with them for their own wedding! (Honestly, why aren't more wedding shows designed like this?!)
